'Geoff Dean's English for Gifted and Talented Students 11-18 is a principled and pragmatic book that will provide Heads of Department with a foundation in this important area of curriculum development' - English Drama Media
'The really surprising thing about Geoff Dean's book is that you come away from it with more than you expected....[This] book shows the English teacher how to plan for and deliver those life-changing moments in the classroom' - G & T Update
Good insight into how apprentice English teachers can differentiate to stretch and challenge pupils. The section on identification, planning and activities are very useful. The CD Rom with sheets that a teacher can add to their library is especially useful. A definite recommendation to our librarian.
